Fenns Meadow Green Burial Ground, Whitchurch, Shropshire

Fenns Meadow is part of Alkington Grange Farm, which has been farmed by the Blantern family for 3 generations. Previously a thriving Dairy Farm, Alkington Grange has had to move and change with the times. Fenns Meadow itself sits within a pastureland of 10 acres.

Fenns Meadow is positioned on high ground, facing a North Westerly direction, perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets that regularly occur. The views from the site stretch across to North Wales, Cheshire and Liverpool. The Llangollen Canal borders the western side of the farm and it is close to the SSSI's of Fenns and Whixhall Mosses.

We offer the sale of plots within our meadow for natural burials and the internment and scattering of ashes.
